By Emma Okonji

HP, producers of premium laptops, has once again made good on its promise to continue to provide its Nigerian customers with its latest innovative products. This followed the launch of its newest products in Lagos recently, where it showcased some of the innovations and advancements that HP has brought to its premium, mid-range and entry level laptops.

Speaking at the product launch, HP’s Consumer Personal Systems Category Manager for Central Africa, Adeyinka Fakunmoju said HP’s mission had always been to meet users’ expectations for innovative products through its laptops, especially with the HP models like Envy, Spectre, Omen and Pavilion series.

Taking guests through some of the advancements that have been introduced into the new HP Envy product range, Fakunmoju said the latest products would showcase the cutting-edge technology that HP is known for, while introducing a more matured performance within a very cost-effective price.

“One of the features we want to showcase today is the fact that within the Envy 2019 products, we introduced and enhanced the PCs with more security features. That means with the Envy line-up, we are giving you the most secure consumer device in the market. And I can say that categorically and boldly anywhere,” Fakunmoju said.

According to him, with the Omen range, HP has reinvented the gaming experience, by providing the best performing PC without restriction to enhance their gaming lifestyle, these devices come with top-class graphics card and processor.
“At HP we provide PCs that deliver on amazing designs without compromising on quality, our amazing devices are breath-taking, it also gives guaranteed hardware power and long-lasting battery life to do more. What we are offering is peace of mind,” he added.

He stressed further that within the Envy series, HP has introduced the latest technology available within the consumer line-up that are insured against visual and virtual hacking.

“In terms of the design, we have tried to bring forward the features we’ve seen in consumer electronics within our houses, even within fashion. We’ve seen that there is a growing trend of wood coming into the home, and we are trying to bring wood panels into consumer laptops.

“With the HP Envy, we are bringing the wood design into the market. We are very excited about this. The wood design is unique to every design that you see. The authentic walnut that we use on these designs is unique to each device. The same way your palms don’t having the same prints, there are no two Envy that have the same wood print,” he added.

HP’s Trade Marketing Manager, Central Africa, Jenny Ani said: “HP strives to provide the right product for customers year on year. HP products are sold at affordable prices at HP authorised retail stores. Our products come with one year warranty and after sales services nationwide”.

Killexams : UN fact-finding mission will probe Ukraine prison killings

UNITED NATIONS (AP) — The United Nations chief said Wednesday he is appointing a fact-finding mission in response to requests from Russia and Ukraine to investigate the killings at a prison in a separatist region of eastern Ukraine that the warring nations accuse each other of carrying out.

Secretary-General Antonio Guterres told reporters he doesn’t have authority to conduct criminal investigations but does have authority to conduct fact-finding missions, and the terms of reference for a mission to Ukraine are currently being prepared and will be sent to the governments of Ukraine and Russia for approval.

Russia claimed that Ukraine’s military used U.S.-supplied rocket launchers to strike the prison in Olenivka, a settlement controlled by the Moscow-backed Donetsk People’s Republic. Separatist authorities and Russian officials said the attack killed 53 Ukrainian POWs and wounded another 75.

The Ukrainian military denied making any rocket or artillery strikes in Olenivka. The intelligence arm of the Ukrainian defense ministry claimed in a statement Wednesday to have evidence that local Kremlin-backed separatists colluded with the Russian FSB, the KGB’s main successor agency, and mercenary group Wagner to mine the barrack before “using a flammable substance, which led to the rapid spread of fire in the room.”

The Ukrainian military on Tuesday likewise claimed that the barrack had been blown up from the inside, citing the nature of damage which it said was inconsistent with Russian claims that Ukraine had shelled the building. It was not immediately possible to verify these claims.

Secretary-General Guterres said he took the requests from Russia and Ukraine for a U.N. investigation of last Friday's deadly incident “very seriously” and expressed hope that both countries will agree to the terms of reference. At the same time, he said, the U.N. is looking for “competent, independent people” to take part in the mission.

The U.N. chief also expressed hope the warring countries will facilitate the mission’s access and provide the data required “to clarify the truth about what happened.”

The Ukrainian POWS at the Donetsk prison included troops captured during the fall of Mariupol. They spent months holed up with civilians at the giant Azovstal steel mill in the southern port city. Their resistance during a relentless Russian bombardment became a symbol of Ukrainian defiance against Russia’s aggression.

HP's Elite Dragonfly is an excellent convertible PC. I know this because I reviewed one just a few months ago in December. Essentially, it takes the EliteBook x360 1030 and packs it into a magnesium chassis, making it much lighter. It still has its best-in-class keyboard and all of those HP security features that its Elite lineup is known for.

To be honest, there isn't much that's new for G2, not that there needs to be. There are two key new features here: Sure View Reflect, and Tile integration. Sure View Reflect is the fourth generation of HP's privacy display technology. The idea is that when someone looks over your shoulder, they can't see what you're working on.

Tile is a company that aims to make it easier to find things. You can attach a Tile to your keys, put one in your wallet, and now, there can be one inside of your PC. If you've ever been wondering where you put your laptop, you're in the right place with the Elite Dragonfly.

Price $2,179

There are actually more features to come. While I reviewed the LTE model back in December, there's going to be a 5G model this summer. That will also include Intel's Comet Lake vPro processors.

Day one


The HP Elite Dragonfly is made out of machined magnesium, which is why it can weigh in at under a kilogram. Aluminum is a heavy material, and that's what the EliteBook 1000 series is typically made out of. My unit is a bit heavier than the 2.2-pound base model though, since it has the larger battery.

It's worth noting that it's machined magnesium though, rather than molded magnesium. Magnesium is a very common material for PCs that are this light, but if you held one of them, you'd probably guess that it's made out of plastic. The Elite Dragonfly doesn't feel like that. It actually feels premium, which is an impressive design feat.

The color is called Dragonfly Blue, not to be confused with the Poseiden Blue that comes on Spectre convertibles. It's a pretty shade of blue, but the one thing that I really appreciate is that HP gave it a color at all. So many of these magnesium laptops just come in this dull gray color. And of course, the lid is stamped with a chrome-colored HP logo. The silver color is also shown on the edges of the hinges; it's a nice touch.

The selection of ports is pretty standard. On the right side of the device, there are two Thunderbolt 3 ports, a 3.5mm combo audio jack, and an HDMI 1.4 port. I'd have liked to see HDMI 2.0 here in 2020, but I also don't use HDMI with a laptop much. If you plan on plugging this PC in for 4K output, you're better off making use of Thunderbolt 3.

On the left side, there's a USB 3.1 Gen 1 Type-A port. This is another area that could use an improvement, as many manufacturers have moved on to USB 3.1 Gen 2, which has double the data transfer speed at 10Gbps. In fact, while there's so much to love about this incredibly well-made convertible, there's a lot that feels decidedly last-gen, like the eighth-gen processors, although we'll talk about why that is in the performance section.

Sure View Reflect display

Sure View Reflect is the fourth generation of HP's Sure View privacy display, and the original Elite Dragonfly shipped with Sure View Gen3. My first taste of Sure View was with the EliteBook 840 G5, which had Gen2. If you looked at it from an angle, the screen would look white. With Gen3, it would look dark, although I've never received that on a review unit. With Sure View Reflect, it looks like it's a copper color.

The whole idea is that no one can see what you're working on if they're looking over your shoulder. As HP often says in its briefings, there are two types of people: those that need Sure View, and those that don't know they need Sure View. And HP's privacy panels work well, as the company has been at this for a while. Lenovo and Dell are just starting to get into the privacy screen game, but they both have some catching up to do.

Sure View Reflect is a massive improvement on Sure View Gen2, which is the only one I've actually reviewed. With Gen2, I found that I'd have a hard time viewing the screen in certain environments.

It's worth noting, however, that the viewing angle isn't that great with Sure View turned off. It's not like it's hard to use or anything, since this is actually a 1000-nit panel, but it does affect the overall experience.

If it sounds like it's not for you, there are two other options for the 13.3-inch screen. There's a low-power 1080p panel that will get you even better battery life, and a 4K UHD panel that will be absolutely gorgeous. For me personally, I'll take Sure View any day of the week. I do love to have that privacy screen when I'm out working in public.

The display has narrow bezels on the sides, with larger top and bottom bezels. While the bottom makes room for the HP logo and also makes the footprint large enough for a spacious trackpad, the top is for the webcam and the IR camera. There's also a privacy guard built into the webcam, which feels like an odd choice.

HP's Spectre x360 lineup takes a completely different approach to the privacy camera. It has a switch on the side that actually disconnects the camera internally, rather than a physical guard. This also takes up less room, and that PC has a much smaller top bezel. It's not that one approach is completely better than the other; I just wish these two teams would work a bit more closely with each other.

It's worth noting that closing the privacy shutter will also keep Windows Hello facial recognition from working, so I usually keep it open. This is true of every privacy shutter on the market, since facial recognition requires both the IR camera and the webcam to work. It does beat putting a piece of tape over your webcam though.

Keyboard and trackpad

The Elite Dragonfly uses HP's Premium Collaboration Keyboard, which in my opinion, is the best laptop keyboard on the market. I know that's saying a lot because I've championed Lenovo's ThinkPad keyboards for so long, but HP's keyboard is at least on par with Lenovo, if it doesn't exceed it. On a side note, speaking of the Elite and Spectre teams working closer together, this is one feature I'd love to see on a Spectre x360.

The keyboard first debuted on the EliteBook 1000 series, so this is mostly pulled out of the EliteBook x360 1030. Of course, HP did a lot of work to make it lighter, in just about every area. But the reason I compare it to the x360 1030 is because I want to be clear that there aren't any compromises when going from the aluminum EliteBook to the Elite Dragonfly.

The keys are accurate and comfortable, with the perfect depth and resistance. Your mileage might vary, but I don't think it will.

The trackpad makes use of the available real estate, and it uses Microsoft's Precision drivers, so it's fast and responsive. This is also why I often don't deliver companies a hard time about having larger bottom bezels, because if HP chopped down the bottom bezel on the Elite Dragonfly, the footprint would be too small to have a trackpad this big.

On the sides of the keyboard are Bang & Olufsen speakers, and the audio quality is phenomenal. HP's been partnering with B&O for its laptops' audio for some time now. They're loud too, whether you're using it as a clamshell or as a tablet.

HP is also using ocean-sound plastics in the speakers in an effort to help the environment. The company has been using these types of materials in several of its products now, and is committed to being sustainable.

Finally, there's a fingerprint sensor on the bottom-right of the keyboard. I'm more of a facial recognition fan, but it's nice to have the option, especially if you're one for using the privacy shutter on the camera.

Tile integration

I don't know how I've lived so long without Tile. The company makes a product that's aimed at helping you to find lost things. HP also sent me a pack of Tiles, which includes two stickers, a regular Tile, and a credit card-shaped Tile. Now, I have a sticker on my wife's phone, the regular Tile on my keychain, and the credit card-shaped one in my wallet.

The HP Elite Dragonfly is the first laptop to have a Tile built into it, although there are more coming. I actually had a bit of trouble setting it up due to some bad metadata, but HP was quick with a fix on that, so I assume that this issue won't show up in consumer units. It turned out to be as simple as installing a small script.

When you first open the Tile app on the Elite Dragonfly and sign in, you should be greeted with an option to activate the Tile in the laptop. Then, it takes under a minute.

Once you're all set, you'll be able to use your phone to locate your PC in your house, and a lot more. It can also keep track of your PCs last known location, or use the Tile network to find it when someone turns it on.

You can, of course, also use your PC to locate your phone, which only needs to have the Tile app installed on it to be found. But what's cool about actually having a Tile inside of the device is that with the Elite Dragonfly, you can ping your PC even if it's powered down.

It's a really cool idea. I don't know who hasn't had that moment of going for their laptop and forgetting where they put it last. Now, it's a non-issue.

Performance and battery life

The unit that HP sent me includes a Core i7-8665U, 16GB RAM, and a 512GB SSD. You read that right; it still has an eighth-generation CPU. The reason for that is because Intel's 10th-generation 'Comet Lake' vPro chips aren't out yet. It's just been so long since I've reviewed an eighth-gen PC that it feels strange that HP is still using it. Other companies, like Lenovo, are using standard Comet Lake parts while waiting for vPro to be announced.

It's also not like Comet Lake vPro will be wildly different from Whiskey Lake vPro, which is what's in the product. They're both 14nm parts, so it's going to be an iterative improvement. Intel might have a hexa-core chip this time, if it has a vPro variant of the Core i7-10710U.

That being said, the performance is fine. You're not exactly missing out by going with eighth-gen, at least for right now. Whiskey Lake is great for productivity, and that's what this machine is aimed at. Remember, this is still a business PC, as much as I'd recommend it to consumers.

Once again, battery life is phenomenal, which is no surprise since not much has changed since the one I reviewed in December. I couldn't quite get the eight hours of general usage that I did last time, and that's thanks to the Sure View display, which does use more power. Note that there are three different screens and two different size batteries. If battery life is your top priority, go for the low-power 1080p display and the larger battery.

For benchmarks, I used PCMark 8 and PCMark 10.

All of the scores are strangely a bit higher. I say it's strange because the internals haven't changed. There's not much else to say about that though.


This is an amazing business laptop. It's super-light, it's pretty to look at, it has an incredible keyboard, and it has an excellent privacy display. It also has features like Sure Start, which checks the BIOS against a master copy and replaces it if it's corrupted. Another great feature is WorkWell, which can suggest that you take breaks or do stretches throughout the day.

The only thing that makes this tough to recommend is that it has eighth-generation Intel processors. If you're going to spend a couple of thousand dollars on this PC, you're better off just waiting until Comet Lake vPro is here. It's soon; I promise. I'd have also liked to see USB 3.1 Gen 2 Type-A and HDMI 2.0.

But in the context of so many people working from home at this time, you might need a new business PC right now. Look no further. The Elite Dragonfly is one of the best convertibles on the market, and not just for businesses.

Killexams : Sprout Social: Picking Up Momentum
Social media marketing concept. Attracting (emoji, like, love, star, comment icon) with smartphone, 3d render. copy space.

oatawa/iStock via Getty Images

It's a good time to be re-investing in growth as market appetite for risk heats back up and concerns about inflation and rising rates fade to the background. Now is a rare opportunity, in my view, to buy into shares of very high-quality growth stocks that are still lingering at beaten-down values.

Sprout Social (NASDAQ:SPT) is an excellent example of this. The social media-management company, a relative upstart to the SaaS world, has seen its share price decline by 35% year to date. After recently posting a very strong Q2 earnings print, however, the stock rallied nearly 10% and is looking on track to recoup a good chunk of its losses.

SPT data by YCharts

We don't really need to state the obvious, but we'll do so anyway: traditional media advertising spend is giving way to social media, which is where all the eyeballs are these days. In order for brands to connect with their customers today, an effective and well-managed social media strategy is of paramount importance.

As social media managers gain prominence as a bona fide career path, specialized tools to manage social media are also attracting attention, and Sprout Social is one of the prominent names in this space. I remain bullish on Sprout Social, both for its strong execution to date plus the relative greenfield nature of its market opportunity.

For investors who are newer to this stock, here is what I consider to be the key bullish drivers for Sprout Social:

  • Platform agnostic and technology that is one-size-fits-all- Sprout Social has expertise across all the major social media platforms, including Facebook (META), Instagram, Twitter (TWTR), Pinterest (PINS), Snap (SNAP), and even TikTok. Sprout Social's technology also uses a single code base that is applicable to all clients, meaning there is no need to custom-configure its solutions for any particular client.
  • >$50 billion TAM, driven by still-nascent business adoption of social media- Many companies, especially SMB-type clients, are still figuring out social media for the first time, meaning that the majority of Sprout Social's market is greenfield. The company estimates its current TAM at >$50 billion.
  • Nearly pure recurring revenue- Nearly 100% of Sprout Social's revenue base is SaaS, with its customers paying recurring fees to use Sprout Social's post schedule, monitoring, and analytics tools.
  • An eye for profitability- Sprout Social is in the low single-digit pro forma operating loss margins, and is looking likely to achieve above-breakeven margins either in FY22 or FY23 based on its long-term operating model.
  • Founder-led- Sprout Social is still led by its founder Justyn Howard, which is typically a strong signal for smaller companies.

Sprout Social is also consistently staying ahead of social media trends and anticipating its clients' needs across various popular platforms. In late May, the company partnered up with TikTok and introduced its first TikTok integration; and in August, it added Instagram Reels to its video management capabilities.

Also on the short-term side, we note that Sprout Social slightly boosted its outlook for the current year. It's now guiding to $254 million in revenue (+35% y/y), versus a prior outlook of $252-$253 million (+34% y/y to +35% y/y growth), while also indicating it can raise its full-year operating margins by 110-120bps versus a prior guide of just 100bps. Given Sprout Social's tendency to guide conservatively, there's still likely quite a bit of upside left for the year.

Sprout Social Q2 outlook

Note that the company's long-term plan calls for sustained >30% y/y growth while delivering 100-300bps of operating margin expansion each year:

Sprout Social operating model

Sprout Social operating model (Sprout Social Q2 earnings materials)

The bottom line here: I consider Sprout Social to be an attractive SaaS vendor with great growth/profitability balance, strong sales execution and continued innovation, as well as very attractive secular market tailwinds. The stock is still down ~35% year to date and down 60% from all-time highs above $140, so now is an excellent time to buy this name on the upswing.

Q2 download

Let's now go through Sprout Social's latest quarterly results in greater detail. The Q2 earnings summary is shown below:

Sprout Social Q2 results

Sprout Social Q2 results (Sprout Social Q2 earnings materials)

Revenue grew 37% y/y to $61.4 million, beating Wall Street's expectations of $60.3 million (+35% y/y) by a two-point margin. Revenue growth did finally decelerate, however, from last quarter's 41% y/y pace.

As a reminder, Sprout Social's business is entirely subscription-based. In Q2, the company added $17 million of net-new ARR to its base, ending Q2 at $256.1 million in total ARR which is up 35% y/y. We do find it encouraging that Sprout Social's ARR is greater than its current 2022 revenue guidance of $254 million.

Sprout Social ARR trends

Sprout Social ARR trends (Sprout Social Q2 earnings materials)

The company believes that sales execution hit a high mark in June (which hopefully bodes strong trends for Q3). Per CEO Justyn Howard's remarks on the Q2 earnings call:

Net new ARR in the months of April and May was relatively consistent with our healthy trajectory, exiting Q1 across new business retention and growth. Our month of June, however, was one of our strongest ever. Retention and expansion trend line stayed consistent with April and May and we delivered a record new business month, including incredibly strong, large deal momentum in the enterprise.

As we look ahead, we currently see steady trends within customer retention and expansion as we remain mission-critical to our customer's workflow. As our investments in mid-market enterprise sales capacity, lean into strong new business demand, and many of our partner and product initiatives begin to impact ARR, we believe we're well positioned to deliver consistently healthy ARR growth into 2023."

The company did not mention any macro-related slowdowns, and in anticipation of continued growth, it is not ratcheting back any of its hiring plans (which many companies in the software sector have started to do, in anticipation of weaker enterprise spend).

As a result, pro forma operating losses in the quarter widened to -$1.9 million, or a -3% margin, which is three points worse than approximately breakeven in the year-ago quarter. The company does aim to close out FY22 at a -2% pro forma operating margin, however, and Boost at 100-300bps per year - indicating that it could hit breakeven on a full-year basis in FY23.

Valuation and key takeaways

The one potential drawback to Sprout Social is that it's not exactly as cheap as other beaten-down SaaS names. At current share prices near $57, Sprout Social trades at a market cap of $3.08 billion. After we net off the $181.7 million of cash on Sprout Social's most accurate balance sheet, its resulting enterprise value is $2.90 billion.

Versus Wall Street's consensus forward-year FY23 revenue estimate of $329.8 million (+31% y/y; data from Yahoo Finance), Sprout Social trades at 8.8x EV/FY23 revenue. Now, Sprout Social did use to trade at mid-teens multiples of revenue, so it's down from its historical highs, but it would be a stretch to call Sprout Social a value stock.

That being said, given that Sprout Social is on a clear path to breakeven profitability while sustaining >30% y/y revenue growth in a very attractive and relatively new end-market, I'm willing to bank on further upside here.

Killexams : From the Board Room to the Grow Room: A Tech Exec's Journey Into CBD

Since 2014, Stirling CBD has sought to provide the highest quality CBD products on the market.

Featured Image for Stirling CBD

Featured Image for Stirling CBD

CARY, N.C., July 25, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Stirling CBD, a leader in cannabinoid product innovation since 2014, provides one of the largest varieties and most potent lineups of CBD products on the consumer market.

Stirling CBD President Joe Kryszak's leadership experience at Fortune 500 companies helped mold the company's shrewd approach to the industry. Stirling's mission is to provide a natural and healthy alternative to over-the-counter and prescription medications with unbeatable pricing.

Growing up in Southern California during the 90s, Kryszak saw both the health benefits (and the overuse problems) associated with cannabis. This interest quickly developed into a passion. He earned his undergraduate degree at San Diego State University and received a Master of Business Administration (MBA) at Pepperdine University in 2002. Despite the interest in alternative medicine, Kryszak took the opportunity to gain business experience at several Fortune 500 companies.

After 20-plus years in leadership positions at some of the most successful companies in America including Amazon, BLACK+DECKER®, HP, and Lenovo, Kryszak made the leap out of corporate America and founded Stirling CBD and Stirling Professional in 2014.

Stirling CBD and Stirling Professional specialize in the research and development of CBD for sleep, pain management, and anxiety for both the consumer market and professional offices, respectively.

All Stirling products are third-party lab tested, 100% organic, locally sourced, and include options with or without tetrahydrocannabinol (THC). Their Delta 8 gummies have been particularly successful in the market.

Stirling Professional products are specifically designed as CBD for chiropractors. Currently at over 200 chiropractic offices throughout the U.S., the doctors using the products see major improvements in their patients' overall health.

The discovery, development, and formulation of new cannabinoids, which ultimately lead to new treatments for several ailments, continue to excite Kryszak about the future of the industry. A bout with cancer in 2021 reaffirmed Kryszak's long-held passion for cannabis-derived products, which was the only solution that could provide him relief during that challenging time.

CBD continues to be adopted by a growing number of people across demographics; according to Global Market Insights, the CBD market size is estimated to grow with a 21.7% compound annual growth rate (CAGR) between 2022 and 2028.

Stirling CBD provides a suite of products, featuring natural ingredients aimed to alleviate pain, recovery, and sleep issues. For more information on Stirling CBD, visit

Killexams : ‘Being driven by a purpose or a mission that feeds your needs and expectations helps create a safe environment,’ SHP meets Bertrand Gibert

shp meets

Ahead of EHS Congress, taking place in Berlin in September, SHP catches up with speaker Bertrand Gibert, Vice President Environment Health & Sustainability at BioMérieux, to discuss the changing role of the safety professional and why a motivated workforce makes a safe workforce.

How did you get into safety and what do you enjoy most about your job?

Bertrand GibertBertrand Gibert (BG): “I am a manufacturing engineer by training, with an emphasis on environment; one of my first projects was to build an environmental management system and quickly we discovered it was relevant to step back and embark safety in the process.

“It was about 20 years ago and my faith in taking care of the planet and the people upon it is still very noble and gives a lot of sense to make an impact.” 

How do you think the role of a safety professional has changed throughout your career and what does the future hold?

(BG): “It used to be a very technical job only, very specialised, and somehow a stand-alone occupation mainly driven by regulations. Today it is a job that requires soft skills; technical skills are far from being enough in succeeding.

“Whatever is the safety role level of seniority, it requires dialogue with stakeholders, consultation, feedback, and co-building initiatives. The job is also more complex with new, developing, or emerging risks such as psychosocial risks, working from home and musculoskeletal disorders.”

You state that you are driven by building and nurturing organisations that motivate people, structure community of practices. Why do you think a motivated workforce makes for a safe workforce?

(BG): “Being driven by a purpose or a mission that feeds your needs and expectations helps create a safe environment in which people dare to execute, take actions for good. Then, you belong to something which is bigger than your own role and responsibilities and you evolve in an environment that you belong to; this includes interacting with your people, environment and acting in a safe way, where people think ‘being safe,’ before doing good.”

In your opinion, what makes a good safety ambassador within an organisation and what should you be looking for when appointing someone for that position?

(BG): “A good safety ambassador is someone who walks the talk, whatever their job or seniority, and focuses more on the safety performance (day-to-day efforts) than the results (numbers).

“Safety is a domain about people and so results are the consequence of what you have built or not built. I like to say, ‘inaction is action”. Many leaders minimise their micro-messages. They may send in few words or one attitude; they may have a huge impact on the safety mindset. I remember a leader who once told me, ‘I do not want to be best-in-class in safety, because today we are doing enough (i.e., my injury frequency rates have decreased) and I need to Boost other areas, such as non-quality cost and efficiency’.

“The safety culture he built was perceived to be minimal by his teams and he achieved the injury rates fitted with a number; he was the same person who later could not explain some injury peaks and safety degradation in his scope, except by formulating people take shortcuts and should think before acting. I like to appoint safety ambassadors who speak the truth, even if the circumstances are painful; leaders who are sensitive about details, like employees’ suggestions and complains; they often succeed in creating safety and overperform generally in their scope of work.”

You will be speaking about BioMérieux’s route to best-in-class safety performance at EHS Congress in September. What can you tell me about that journey and what will delegates learn from your session at the event?

(BG): “EHS Congress is the place to hear from others about their EHS anecdotes and practices. Overall, we all have the same challenge to create a safe workplace; I will humbly share how an organisation with a strong purpose to help save lives, driven by a long-term vision and an entrepreneurial mindset evolved from a safety compliance only approach to people empowerment dynamics, in order to make everyone accountable for safety.”

Killexams : 2023 Ford F-150 Lightning Pro SSV Police Pickup Unveiled

This was predictable, especially after seeing Ford introduce the Mustang Mach-E configured for law enforcement. Now it's the turn of the electric version of the Ford F-150 to get the treatment. The Lightning SSV police pickup will have law enforcement as its mission.

The letters SSV stand for Special Service Vehicle, by the way.

The SSV version is not all that different from the regular Lightning. The interior is of course adapted, but it also has the 12-inch screen that dominates the centre console. Power is the same with 452 hp for the standard battery and 580 hp for the larger-capacity unit. With a time of 4 seconds to reach 97 km/h, we're talking about the fastest police vehicle... alongside with the Ford Mustang Mach-E. The range figures should be similar, around 370 or 515 km, depending on the configuration.

Inside, the SSV model gets the same fabric seats (designed to be more durable for police use) as the Responder version of the F-150. LED information lighting on the roof and plates on the back of the front seats will also be included. Perhaps more interesting is that the model comes standard with the Lightning's Pro Power Onboard system, which can be used as a power source and thus might be very handy at the scene of an accident or during a natural disaster.

Ford hasn’t yet released any details regarding pricing or when the F-150 Lightning SSV will be available, but more information should follow soon. It will also be interesting to see how the model will be offered in Canada (if at all) and if so, what the differences will be, if any.
